    Spicy Pork "Tacos"

    I took the filling from a recipe for some Spicy Pork pasties and adapted slightly.

    Fry 1/2 small onion, 1/2 pepper and 1 clove garlic for 10 mins until soft. Add 1/2 tsp each of cumin, cayenne and paprika. Continue to cook for 2 mins then remove from pan.
    Fry 200g of minced pork until browned and then add back the onion mixture. Add 6 tbsps of stock , season, bring to boil and then simmer to reduce until most of liquid has vanished.
    Use romaine lettuce/ little gem lettuce leaves ( or anything with good shape and some crunch) and fill with pork filling. Top with grated cheese and condiment of choice. (mayo, sour cream, ranch)

    New York Strip Steak doesn't have enough fat in it, darn it!

    Knew I should have stuck with the rib eye, but I got the strip steak on sale.

    L--Giant cobb salad with cheese, egg, avocado, bacon, so good!

    Green Chili Gravy.... Goes with everything mexican and can be adapted as a soup/stew base...

    Bone in pork steaks - crockpot overnight.
    Debone and add sautéed onion and celery, can (s) diced green chiles, cumin, garlic powder and salt and pepper.
    Simmer and reduce.
    Thicken with xanthan gum.

    No real measurements of ingredients but everything "to taste"

    That's the base... Add larger pieces of lean pork or chicken and veggies to make it a stew.
    Otherwise this is the best Mexican sauce and low in sodium because the fattier cut of pork requires no additional canned stock.

    Also great with eggs at breakfast!

    Rib eye steak. Found out the hard way this week that New York Strip does not have enough fat in it. For the first and last time in my life last night I went on a binge involving steak, butter, and onions. Didn't even think that was possible. And I've been ravenous ever since I changed steaks. Who would have thought such a little thing could make such a huge difference?

    Todays lunch: Tuna patties

    Great for when you are fed up with plain old tuna salad!!

    Recipe: (Makes 4 patties/tuna burgers)

    2 tins of tuna, drained
    1 egg
    2 tbsp full fat cream cheese
    salt & pepper

    Add herbs and/or spices to your tuna patties if you wish. This works well with the following:

    -Asian style- with chopped fresh chilli, coriander (cilantro) and squeezed with lime juice.
    -Dill & lemon zest
    - chopped black olives and parmesan

    Chill mix in the fridge for at least 30 mins.

    Heat a non stick pan with a little oil of choice. Spoon in quarter of the tuna mix and shape into a patty. Crisp one side for about 4 mins and delicately flip over and repeat.

    Serve dressed with lemon juice & salad.

    LOVE the sound of this, and I'm definitely trying it tomorrow. Thanks!

    I've been enjoying a stir fry recently.

    Fry onions and garlic, add meat of choice (I've used mince pork and sausage). Fry until meats browned. Add sliced peppers for a few minutes. Add small broccoli florets and chopped green beans, a splash of soy and some water. Bring to boil then cover and simmer for 5 mins until veg are cooked. I also add a knob of butter to add some fat and also thicken the sauce.
